Format: Paperback
My original plan to read through all the Tarzan books was nearly thwarted by the shocking low quality of the writing. 'Son of Tarzan' was just about the last straw literally insulting the very concept of Tarzan while the previous two books were likewise weak. I skipped `Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar' because I don't happen to own that book but `Jungle Tales of Tarzan' has reinvigorated my quest to forge on. Jungle Tales goes back to before Tarzan met Jane and was still living with the apes. THIS is what I read Tarzan for and THIS is where Burroughs shines. I love it when Burroughs tries to put the reader into the mind of an animal. In one story Tarzan ponders the concept of God having discovered it in one of the books he came across. He consults an elderly ape, Mumba, but her single stroke of wisdom through her many years of life is the story of how she once ate a sting-bug beetle that she mistook for an edible one. In another story a tiger, having killed a female ape, attempts to drag her away for lunch. The ape tribe having no long term thinking simply accepts the situation intending to go about their lives. Tarzan, however, rallies the apes having realized that if no punishment is meted out to the jungle cat it'll simply return again and kill more apes. Burroughs treatment of the animal intellect is much more believable and inventive here than in the lamentable `Beasts of Tarzan' where Tarzan trains a tribe of apes to row a canoe. Perhaps my favorite in this book was when Taug discovers that other apes in the tribe intend on killing Tarzan. His primitive mind feels a kinship towards Tarzan thanks to the numerous times Tarzan had saved him.Read more ›
